the trials and trouble haitians of president bill clinton. you're coming in and abc in the '90s, and bill clinton is president. yet the impeachment woes. did you have to deal with any of second term clinton problems? >> yeah, a good part of my first year at abc news was dealing with the clinton issues. the monica lewinsky story broke 10 months into my tenure in january of 1998. i was down in cuba. the pope was visiting cuba and we're all -- peter jennings, ted koppel, we have had well over 100 news people down there to cover the event. i got a call one night, cokie roberts and some of the other people from the desk in your thing we've got this investigation we've got going on that looks like it's going to break. there's this young intern who told her close friend that she had a relationship, inappropriate relationship with the president. i said that's ridiculous. that can't be right. we had no reasonably just telling the truth, that a friend is some truth so forget it. i went back into then and in about an hour they said we just confirmed janet reno, the attorney general, has officially e

be the same again. as bill clinton and admiral mullen say at the back of my book on the dust jacket blurbs, the things that he did as a reformer will never be undone. and i'm not talking about whether they are bell bottoms or trousers or side burns, those things can be changed. but the way he reformed the social policies and made the navy response to the contemporary needs of society and what he did with respect to vis-a-vis the soviets during the period of the cold war and the strategic arms limitations and his role there. these are things that have left a mark in history, and an important one. and i try to deal with those in the book. what bud zumwalt did and what i was drawn to about his life is that he made the navy think about things that they ought to have been thinking about before he forced them to. and, indeed, he took on the charge and the charter of redoing the social contract of the navy. an institution that he loved. and he didn't want to destroy the navy, he didn't want to do anything except reform it and bring it into the 20th century so that young people would join the navy

about ben gupta's story when i got a phone call just after his death from former president bill clinton. ben's father is an old friend of the clintons. >> what kind of a kid was he? >> a light shined out of him. that's all i can tell you. he grew up, he was big, strong, handsome, smart. and wanted to make something of his life. he was industrious, but he was normal. he liked to have a good time. he had -- i promise you that night, he had no idea that he was turning out the lights. none. and if it's true of him, it's got to be true of a lot of other people. >> he finds some solace from his son's death by funding programs that educate people about the dangers of misusing prescription drugs. and recently, he made a $1 million pledge to the clinton global initiative, to support the former president's new-found passion about this issue. >> he said, i have been very fortunate. and my son was worth $1 million. >> it's still hard to talk about. >> oh, it is, it is. >> do you think it ever won't be? >> no. i think about him all of the time. like in d.c. today, so i went walking on the gw campus.

department, she worked extremely closely with secretary of state hillary clinton traveling the world and providing strategic analysis and advice on the days' most complex and urgent international issues. she was the first ever woman policy planning director. it was, she said, the job she had always wanted. >> no one is happier than i am that this day is here. >> but then slaughter just gave it up, quit, turned in her resignation letter to secretary clinton and left washington. she resumed her princeton professorship and life in new jersey with her husband and two teenage sons. in the wake of her departure, slaughter wrote a cover story for "the atlantic" magazine, why women still can't have it all. within days the piece became the most read in "the atlantic's" 150-year history. over 1 million views in the first week alone. tonight anne-marie slaughter takes us behind that personal decision that became a raging public debate. explain the intensity of that kind of job because it's really much more than what many people think. this is a more intense job than a very senior job in the pri
reality. the grew of age in politics in the clinton administration and watched pelosi and harry reid vote for tax increases under bill clinton that are the taxes we would go back to if we do nothing. at the same time, i watched nancy pelosi lead the charge against the bush tax cuts that ultimately now they want to keep 98% of. the truth is if we go over the cliff on a tax basis, we're only going back to the clinton era taxes. if we don't change spending, we're going to stay over the cliff. even if we go back to the clinton tax rates, the clinton tax rates, which is what the cliff is described as, you still have nearly half a trillion dollars a year, $5 trillion over ten years worth of deficit. that's because while we grew the -- under bush the taxes revenue went up 25%, and spending went up 100% in the last 12 years. if you put back the revenue from the higher taxes, you still have a deficit. that's what we're trying to change. >> we kind of are where we are, and no one is talking about spending cuts. they're talking about keeps taxes low, which everybody agrees. let me ask a specific que
klein and former reagan speechwriter, peggy noonan. plus forme clinton press secretary dee dee myers, a contributor to "vanity fair," and michael duffy, executive editor of "time" magazine. welcome to you all. you just heard the reporting from our two correspondents and the two senators and, joe, it sounds like-- surprise, surprise-- they haven't reached a deal yet and the idea of going over the cliff is a real one. >> yeah, but they will reach a deal. it may not be in the next 48 hours. it will be in the next couple of weeks, and we should always remember, with all of this crisis talk going on, that what's about to happen say return to the clinton tax rates of the 90s, which when they were imposed in 19 network everybody predicted a big recession, and what we had was a big economic boom. so there are really negative aspects to going over the cliff, especially for the very poor, and there's going to be a lot more chaos in the pentagon and throughout the government because contracts, but, still, it ain't that huge, i don't think. and i think they'll get the deal done. >> o'donnell: pe
incomes would go back to the tax rates that prevailed when bill clinton was president. why the other side, you know, is horrified by that is perplexing to me. because i look back at the clint era, i was here. that's a long time ago. i was here. i came to the senate. with senator feinstein when bill clinton was president and he faced similar issues in that we had a deficit that was getting out of control, a debt that was getting out of control. we needed to have growth, and so he put forward a plan, a budget plan that invested in our people, invested in the infrastructure, invested in education, and at the same time said we can find cuts in other areas and we can raise taxes on those who are doing very well. and what happened with that fair and balanced approach? what happened was the greatest prosperity in modern history. 23 million jobs, no more deficits, we got to a balanced budget and i remember saying to my husband my goodness, what's going to happen? there won't be any more u.s. government bonds because we're going to be out of the debt situation. we saw -- we saw it on the horizon w

[applause] that will represent more than 2.2 million square feet of civic real estate, including buildings such as city hall, the symphony, the library, the art museum and more. it's challenging to retrofit some of the buildings for energy efficiency and water conservation but we have done it. once lead certified the civic center retrofit strategies and technology can serve as a model to other cities and i would like to take this opportuni
calls for secretary of state hillary clinton to testify as soon as possible on the deadly attacks in benghazi that killed four americans. senator lindsey graham demanding had he appear before congress ahead of john kerry confirmation. take a listen to the interviews on fox "fox news sunday." >> senator graham, how important is it for secretary of state hillary clinton to testify under oath before she leaves office about the benghazi terror attack? and what do you think we still need to know? >> absolutely essential that she testify. i want to know from the secretary of state's point of view, were you informed of the security situation, were all these cables coming out of benghazi, ever get to your level. if they didn't, that's a problem. if they did, why didn't you act differently. >> some republican colleagues are prepared to hold off confirm nation of john kerry as secretary of state until secretary of state clinton testifies as secretary. >> that's going to happen i've been told by senator kerry, he wants that approach. he needs to hear what she says so we can comment. it makes

with a series of recommendations. many of them were already starting to be implemented. secretary clinton has indicated that she is going to implement all of them. what i've -- my message to the state department's been very simple. and that is, we're going to solve this. we're not going to be defensive about it. we're not going to pretend that this was not a problem. this was a huge problem. and we're going to implement every single recommendation that's been put forward. some individuals have been held accountable inside of the state department. and what i've said is that we are going to fix this to make sure that this does not happen again. because these are folks that i send in to the field. we understand that there are dangers involved. but, you know, when you read the report, and it confirms what we had already seen based on some of our internal reviews, there was just some sloppiness, not intentional, in terms of how we secure embassies in areas where you essentially don't have governments that have a lot of capacity to protect those embassies. so we're doing a thorough review. not only

on january 1, were the clinton era tax rates and they voted to cut them. and grover can't argue against that because the law is the law. guest: i wish you weren't so rashal about things. that's not the way congress works. but maybe you're right . host: to denise on the democratic line. caller: i would like to make the point that we would all be driving electric cars which would get everybody a job the last 30 years if they didn't stop it because so many people are entrenched in oil and oil money. and if we would have more democraticically run businesses, which i do see in my home state happening more and more, i think that would solve a big big portion of the problem. thank you. host: what energy end of the year energy issues are we looking at here and which ones are likely to get punted down the road? guest: that's a good question. i'm not sure what energy issues -- i'm not aware of any -- host: tax issues? guest: tax issues for the fiscal cliff. but going down the road you definitely have some issues. there's the need for a new highway bill, they've had trouble tasking the highway leg
? >> back in the clinton years, we were able to actually balance the budget, we treated the longest period of uninterrupted growth. -- created the longest period of uninterrupted growth. and we were paying down the debt. in recent times, i've been part of a nonpartisan commission to resolve these debt issues. there we had 11 of the 18 members agree on a plan to the country back on track. i still believe that is probably the best blueprint for going forward. i was also part of the group of six that became the group of eight, evenly divided the dream republicans and democrats. -- that between republicans and democrats. >> lots to go back with. let me start with the 1990's. how much of that success was the bursting economy with the tech bubble that was happening that brought more money into the coffers? >> all of these things are connected. that is my belief. governmental policy, what happens in the private sector. because we were showing that we could get results, the government could make decisions, that gave additional confidence to the private sector. there was additional certainty, becau
is it for secretary of state clinton to testify under oath before she leaves office about the benghazi terror attack? and what do you think we is still need to know about benghazi? >> absolutely essential that she testify. i want to know from the secretary of state point point of view were you inform of the deteriorating security situation. i think it is very important to know how the intelligence coming from libya how it was received in the state department so we can learn and correct any mistakes we need to correct. >> chris: some of your republican p colleagues say they are prepared to hold off the confirmation of john kerry as secretary of state until secretary clinton testifies as secretary before she leaves office? >> thatle happen. i have been told by senator kerry he wants that approach also. he needs to hear what she says so he can make comments about i agree he with her or don't agree with her. it makes sense to have her go first. >> chris: do you agree that she needs to testify first as and have you been assured she will testify? it has been three and a half months since benghazi and she
to the clinton era rates. the top rate under bill clinton was 39.6. the logic of limiting tax increases to people over $400,000 in income is that would affect one of the rates. the trading range is between 35 and 39.6 for the top rate. >> laurie, i want to put something up from your article in the washington post. one part got a lot of our attention. i'll read it. as night fall approached top democratic and republican aids shoved the latest proposals between the two leaders offices about 60 steps apart. now for folks who cover washington, they may understand this is how negotiations take place, this is how work gets done. it seemed asinine that these two offices are this close together, the two men are in washington and they are not sitting down in washington having a negotiation, talking face-to-face, you have paperwork going back and forth. is that just how things get done? is it process or a shame as well? >> it's a little -- they were working at yesterday, yeah, it's how things get done. harry reid wasn't at the capital yesterday. mitch mcconnell was there. the senior staff are trying to figu
mr. clinton tax increases as far as the eye can see under mr. obama. >> wheno the spendg cuts happen, sarah? >> never. >> and you often see the tax increases kick in and inhe health care law, and spending never gets cut. >> i think you need to look where the spending goes, providereventive care. and we saw 80 million acces preventative care and that's a net savings for the entire health care system passed on to all of us. >> how have job cuts we've en the medical device makers, they're soued the horn about them. how does it help the broad economy though? >> what you're seeing is readjusting of the economy. most of this tax money ces out ofhose m making 250,000 or mo more, an increase on those individuals. at the same time that we're finding out her on capitol hill about a drease on those making 250 or less, so, majority of amerans. when we have this increase on aery small portion, we see that those folks are welcoming this increase, a poll released the day befor christm put thugh american express and the harrison group, saw that 67% of those making 1% or more want today see this incr
clinton on technology and society, produced several films and named by "newsweek," as, quote, one of the women shaping the 21st century. she is a parent and is focused on making an impact, especially in our everyday use of technology and connection and her newest film is called "engage." take a look. [ speaking spanish ] >> that is your life clock. some day it's going to stop. a lot of things are going happen in the world between now and then, so what are you going to do while you're here? stand on the sidelines? or are you going to be part of something bigger? give a little bit, give a little bit of my life for you give a little bit, give a little bit of your life to me. >> tiffany, welcome back. you always are so fascinating to me. you're constantly re-inventing yourself. do you ever run out of new ideas? >> right now, i'm in a fertile period. and i'm always interested in the same thing and that is basically the internet. >> uh-huh. >> and how do we be mindful of how we're living in the world? in essence, i'm exploring the same idea for 20 years. >> and it's funny. you started t
safety. >> do have you a gun? >> i do. it's a .38. >> the best idea was hillary clinton's decision to turn down the request that she go on weekend talk shows following the benghazi attack. she left that honor to susan rice, who proceeded to strangulate her career. okay, worst idea of 2012. >> worst idea is jill kelley's decision to get her fbi friend to look into those nasty emails she was getting from some woman up here in d.c., named paula broadwell. finished off, caused a whole scandal. >> romney's call for self- deportation of illegal people in the country. >> newt gingrich's proposal to establish a moon colony. >> was he serious about that? >> that's very good former cong reynolds, now is running for jesse jackson's new seat. >> apple maps into the iphone 5 in order to compete with the sales of google. while the sales of iphones were strong. the apple maps were a bomb. people got lost. sorry to see you go, pat? >> neil armstrong. american astronaut, first man on the moon, american hero. >> the print edition of news week. >> susan. >> representative allen west, who lost his bid
president reagan and deal with the spending? >> it depends if he turns into bill clinton or remains barack obama. clinton understood his legacy, was what was important and he would be remembered as somebody who was good on the economy, as a democrat. guess what? he wasn't a typical democrat. he was forced to change. a lot of it had to do with the fact that the congress changed. we have divided government. if the president wants the same old, same old, he will get t. the republicans won't cave. it's equal branchings of government. they control two-thirds and it takes three to tango, the senate, white hussein. >> eric: terrific debate. >> heather: who is leading in the tango, that's what we don't know. congressional leaders are trying to come up with that deal, with less than two days before massive tax hikes and spending cuts kick in and small businesses are already being affected. companies have no idea how much more they are going to owe uncle sam next year. that is affecting how they are doing business right now. we have those details from the new york city newsroom. >> reporter: many sm
will jump from 10% back to the clinton-era rate of 15%. that's a pretty big financial bite for people in west virginia and i know in ohio, too, sir. these are people that are struggling right now. instead of an overnight tax hike of 5%, the calm act smooths the transition by phasing in increases over three years. so instead of a 5% increase, the 10% bracket would only go to 1 1.6% the first year. the calm act does the same with the other tax rate tax rates phm in over three years. but the calm act also puts the senate on record in support of comprehensive overhaul of our tax system. we can still work towards a big fix like the simpson-bowles framework and if we can do that next year, we could stop the full increase from ever occurring. another important feature of the calm act is the way it treats sequestration. again, if we go over the cliff and do nothing, nearly every government program will be hit with the same percentage cut, and that includes social services, education, research and infrastructure, all of the things that we need to grow our fragile economy. the calm act gives th
to present bush was in office instead of bill clinton. so there may be some move to breathe and care. i found in doing research on the book that violent gun crime did not go down significantly from the automatic assault weapons ban was in effect. that doesn't prove it had no effect, but statistically. >> host: it didn't ban the sales, but sure that you keep old ones. you look at it. it is due that many difference. >> host: if you reinstated the ban now would have the same grandfather clauses about weapons previously purchased his outfit would it really be? a lot of times liberals, and i called the book is a gross case of the second amendment, making the mistake of thinking strict gun control is the way you control gun violence. i think if you could eliminate all 300 million guns in this country, legal and illegal, surely gun violence would go down. but we're not going to be able to do that. instead what happens is in places like new york where i live, overwhelmingly to support to make it as difficult as possible for everybody to buy gun legally be seen as the best way to keep gun violence dow
to t. clinton had a good second term, by triangulating, working with the republicans. we don't see barack obama taking that stance. he is setting up his term as a firewall to the progressive movement. i represent the new deal and progressive achievements and i am going to hold this line -- meaning social security, medicare, medicaid and the entitlement programs that the democrats have fought for for decades. >> shannon: he won't have to face the voters again. so in that case, there are a number of things he has promised, some in his first term, leftover into the second term, immigration. he says he will make that a top priority. recent events, making gun control issues a top issue for him. but he has taken a lot of heat from those who thought he didn't do enough the first time, pushing him on issues of gay marriage, the environment. which of those do you think he will give the most attention? will he feel the freedom of his firstterm nmany ways to act nonlegislatively, with executive orders and regulations? do you think he will beef up his effortings? >> you had dennis kucinich on.
-- gerald ford, george w. bush, and bill clinton. arnold even appeared on "the ed sullivan show." and on a personal note, i have an opportunity to play golf with arnie along with my son, joe baca, jr., and we had an opportunity to walk backwards and play, and let me tell you, walking that course and playing with him, it was about a human being, a person who demonstrated caring about individuals. it did not matter where you came from. it was the fact that he treated you like a human being and we were all special to him. let me tell you. arnold is a genuine person with a great sense of humor. he is a considerate man with compassion in his heart for others. although he does not feel comfortable being called the king of golf, he truly is the king of golf. arnold palmer is royalty, royalty in the eyes and hearts of those he has helped. we thank you, arnold palmer, for all that you have done in making others' lives a lot better and being that role model and serving our nation. you are a true american who deserves to be honored with the congressional gold medal. i thank you. god bless
